Brighton's voice of the people

Joseph Young has recently been interviewing people in Brighton and Hove about what they think of democracy and recording their answers, to make a sound collage.  Inspired by The Beatles' epic collage Revolution 9 on their White Album, Young's Revolution #10 project was awarded one of the inaugural Arts and Tech commissions by Brighton Digital Festival 14, and (join the revolution here ) went live on 1st September.

The sound collage, lasting eight minutes, which he has created from his interactive project will be broadcast inside Redroaster on Sunday 21st September, on the hour, every hour from 11am - 4pm.  At 1.30pm, Joseph will perform a 'victory speech', composed entirely from what local people have told him they want to see happen.

Illumination by Woodstar

Brighton wood sculptor Dave Gourlay of Woodstar, has created a series of architectural lights displaying the translucence of different wood veneers, which form a permanent exhibition at the cafe. 

The pendant Trinity shades are adjustable.  When shut down they give sculptural mood lighting, when opened up they allow a practical quantity of direct light to suffuse the room.  Woodstar offer a range of pendant and wall mounted lampshades.  Alternatively you can specify a unique light, or combination of lights which reflect the proportions, palette and feel of your particular scheme.

Woodstar is a Brighton based company, specialising in shaping wood into curves, circles
and spheres.  They take their inspiration from classical geometry and natural forms.

If you would like to view further examples of their work (all displayed at Redroaster
are for sale) please go to the Woodstar website .

Opening Times:
7.00 am to 7.00pm Monday to Saturday
